In my opinion. While we do not have a huge I.T. crowd of developers, it makes no sense to spend time on it, the more so because there is a huge amount of external solutions for any platform.

Specifically for this task\request, giving a list of links to help on a secure connection to the web interface(not only):

http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/SshTunnel
http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/Secure_web_access_via_ssl_of_your_mldonkey_client
http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/AuthenticateWebInterfaceUsingApache
http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/ApacheRedirection

A little later, I can merge all these articles into one with separate partitions.

A few years ago b8_bavard wrote https support in peerple [peerple.net]. Since he is also the author of mldonkey the http connection management code appears to be similar if not the same as mldonkey. Far from a nightmare, I believe if anyone were interested it would be rather straight forward to import this existing https code directly into mldonkey.

Its a good idea to use 3rd party programs to provide a secure way to access MLDonkeys interfaces. Putting all possible features into MLDonkey is not KISS and a nightmare to code.

There is a program called stunnel should do this job better than apache.

Its easy to achieve this with Apache httpd as a frontend using mod_proxy. Apache httpd exists on all plattforms.

[field #9] Summary: Add HTTPS for webinterface connection
[field #10] Original Submission: I think that in addition to http interface you can add the option to connect with https secure protocol to avoid sniffing in no-secure (remote)enviroments.

I have done few months ago a request to emule s developers about adding the possibility to conenct to emule using https instead of http.
They(silently) agree and version 0.46 have this feature.
It is useful cause you can acess(securely) mlnet simply opening the port without using ssh-forwarding that is abit difficult and needs (on windows) installed software.
